Question about Samsung SMH7178STD Microwave Oven

8 Answers

Removing an over the range Samsung smh4150 microwave from the wall.

The motor seized and was blowing the curcuit breaker.
when I opened the bottom to disconnect the motor , a motor wire shorted against the frame and now there is no power to the key pad and the lights are out.
I started to remove the oven from the wall to take it in for service,but it is not coming off easily.
I don't have the install instructions.

Hi,
If you have no power to the main boards, then the multi-tap transformer has probably broken down.

Test the continuity / Ohms of the input and outputs of this first to ensure you have a viable supply.

    You need to locate if any screw is securing the unit on the wall.

Take the mounting screws out of the top. (usually in the upper cabinet)
Then slightly LIFT - as it is seated in a lip-mount bracket to the wall.

The frame carries ground, if a wire shorted to ground surely ine of the wires had melt, or there is a blown fuse, or something has blown on control board.

The whole wiring and boards must be tested using a multimeter.

No power, no lights, no clock. Nothing works on my Samsung over the range microwave model SMH17138


Your microwave may be plugged into a regular receptacle which is on a circuit breaker often in a cupboard above the range.Check around to see if anything else is not working. Check your circuit breaker box for a breaker that needs resetting. If you see one out of line with the others turn it off and then back on. Good luck..

How do I open it up to look for a blown fuse to circuit breaker?


When you remove the front control panel you will see the two fuses in the next internal section. Below are instructions for removing control panel:

You can do this without removing unit from wall. First unplug unit. Next remove the two screws on the top of the unit closest to the front. These screws simply keep the up facing vent in place. Next slide the vent to the left (plastic latches on bottom hold in place) to allow vent to be removed. You should now see a single screw above the control panel. Remove it then open the microwave door. Gently slide the control panel up which will disengage the plastic latches on the panel sides. Suggest if you are going to remove the controller and replace take a picture before removing it so you know exactly how to reconnect all the wires.

Hello, I have a samsung over the range SMH4150. It is not vented outside> the other day I was heating a potato (2 minutes) and the oven was on as well. The microwave got VERY hot and shut off...


Yes I do think the fuse is bad. It is in line with the power cord. It's normally a 20 amp ceramic type. They are readly avaidable at any applinace repair shop or sometimes Radio Shack
Good Luck and I hope this helped.

Blowing 25 amp fuses


In that case the outlet your using is pushing out too much electricity. Try calling your local electric company for help or a professional electric repair man.

Turntable does not rotate


Normally, yes.

The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven. In some brands, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

JMC7000ADW Blows circuit breaker


I've had this problem twice with our microwave. The hint to where the problem lies is that the breaker blows when you open the door at times. Inside the microwave are three microswitches; primary and secondary interlock micro switches and an Interlock Monitor switch. The switches are supposed to shut down the microwave if it is running and the door is opened. But, I've found the upper primary switch can stick internal at times and when the door is opened the stuck switch will, because of the way it is wired as a safety switch, cause either the fuse or possibly the main circuit breaker for the oven to pop. The reason the stuck switch blows the breaker or fuse is when the door is opened the interlock switch will cause the neutral wire from the AC power to be applied to the Upper Primary Interlock switch which normally should be open when the door is opened, but if the switch is intermittent or the contacts weld themselves shut the neutral line is connected direct to the "hot" side of the power line through the fuse and thermostat. The first time my microwave failed the switch had melted the contacts together inside the switch and the second time the switch became intermittent and would blow the breaker to the over ever so often. I suspected the switch the second time this happened and utilizing an ohm meter I checked the switch several times by opening and closing the door and once in a while it would remain closed instead of opening when the door was opened. Of course while trouble shooting the power cord to the microwave must be disconnected and use all safety precautions when working around the high voltage areas inside the microwave. I wrote Jenn-Air about the bad switch and the way it is wired into the circuit, but never received any acknowledgement. I suspect these microswitches are under rated for the amount of current that passes through the switch, thus they overheat and eventually arc the contacts together. I hope this helps explain the intermittent problem and could explain many of the intermittent blown fuse problems I see in these internet help sessions

Home Circuit Breaker Pops When Door Is Opened


It does sound odd for it to blow the breaker. It should blow the fuse, not the breaker. But looking at the exploded view diagram, I don't even see a fuse! Makes me wonder if this is some foreign model. *grin* In any event, you will need to replace all the door switches since they all have been stressed by the same overcurrent. Also be sure that all the switch mount and door latch parts are activating properly when you open and close the door. The switches (generic replacements) are widely available from local appliance parts stores. If you need any other parts, you can see an exploded view and parts list here: http://www.geappliances.com/shop/prts/
